A Very Very Very Theatrical Top 10

It’s New Year’s Eve, so there’s just time for another list. Here are the 10 shows that stood out for me in 2018, in the order that I saw them.

  1. My Mum’s a Twat – Royal Court
  2. Network – National Theatre
  3. Quiz – Noel Coward Theatre
  4. The Lieutenant of Inishmore – Noel Coward Theatre
  5. Fun Home – Young Vic
  6. The Jungle – Playhouse Theatre
  7. Exit the King – National Theatre
  8. Antony and Cleopatra – National Theatre
  9. Company – Gielgud Theatre
  10. A Very Very Very Dark Matter – Bridge Theatre

As a massive Brief Encounter fan, I’d like to give a special mention to the revival of Emma Rice’s stage version at the Empire Cinema in London and to Posting Letters to the Moon, which I saw at the Mill at Sonning shortly afterwards. A perfect double bill.

Happy theatrical New Year!
